The annual UX Summit

User Feedback Coffee (UFC): For quick insights.

UFCs are regular sessions where we meet with our members to gather direct, unfiltered feedback about… 

  • Initial ideas
  • Hypotheses surrounding certain UX aspects
  • Designs or wordings
  • Needs, preferences or specific scenarios. 

UFCs are held in our offices or online, and their format is a bit like speed dating: each of the four participating UX teams is assigned a user who’s shown, e.g. a prototype, mock-up or multiple designs, and asked to give feedback on what they see. After 15 minutes, the teams move on to the next user so they gather feedback from four different people in an hour.

Design spikes

Maybe you’ve already heard of design thinking. Design spikes are a variation of design thinking where at least two designers focus on a single task for a few days at a time. They may be designers whose paths don’t cross very often, so they have ample opportunity to get creative and try out new methods with one another. This is a fun way of sparking creativity, and you’d be surprised how many things you see on our platform that emerged from a design spike.

Copy workshops

How do you go about writing on behalf of a brand? How can words and phrases be as synonymous with a brand as certain colours, shapes and typography? Is that even possible in a user interface where everything needs to be short and snappy? It is indeed! Our UX writers offer regular workshops in German to show you how to write for your brand.

Design operations: keeping the wheels turning.

Design Operations

Our design ops team look at the ‘how’ within UX:

  • How do we work together?
  • How can we be as effective as possible?
  • How do we achieve maximum impact through our work?

By clarifying the ‘how’, our design, copywriting and research teams can focus on the ‘what’. Design operations focuses on software, tools, principles and processes, interface management, special UX formats, training, team events and onboarding new colleagues with a view to fostering an environment for maximum user centricity.

One-pagers: new ideas in brief

Many of our ideas are often followed by phrases such as ‘wanna bet that people will like it?’ These bets are then offered up to various internal stakeholders and departments to see whether or not they want to take them. This needs some kind of decision-making basis, which is where one-pagers come into play. They’re a simple, feedback-friendly way of sharing the problem, opportunities, risks and intended outcome of an idea, ideally leading to much better decisions.

SUNDAE Talks: THE conference for digital innovation

Serve User Needs & Deliver Awesome Experiences, or SUNDAE for short, is a mantra that pretty much anyone in UX would ascribe to without hesitation. The urge to get together and talk about this became so great that it became an annual one-day UX conference we set up involving people from different UX disciplines at various companies.

Design critique: Constructive feedback for designs

Criticising concepts and designs is easy. How often do we catch ourselves saying things like ‘I’d have done it differently’. Here at XING, we look at things from another angle by holding design critique sessions where people can give and collect constructive feedback and discuss their efforts. Check out our Medium article about this.
